"A fine production...The director Kymberly Harris did a fine job with a splendid cast...I was particularly struck by the way Sophia Silver's May changed when Martin came for their date. Eddie obviously brings out a great deal of anger and resentment in May, even inciting her to a physical fight. With Martin she is courteous and calm...Shepard is showing us how love is a thing that makes people crazy. Eddie and May share the madness. We are all literally fools for love." Full Review
"A delightful two-character play...The play moves at a leisurely, but always interesting pace, as the sisters address the audience with a fascinating oral history of their family and the world around them...Carter and Jason, worked beautifully together - totally convincing as sisters who had lived together their whole lives...The play by Emily Mann selected stories that revealed the intelligence, humor, resourcefulness, and dignity of the sisters, two remarkable and most admirable women."

"Impeccably rehearsed and performed, the one-hour presentation moves along at breakneck speed...Despite the grim visuals and situations, I found the production original, most entertaining and, is does it sound strange to say, fun? The Company performs with a total and endearing commitment to the work and very clearly makes many important and topical points in a non-threatening and entertaining way." Full Review
